Just slight mislocation of the cursor, quite common with a touchpad mouse, causes the tab of interest to close, or the Update dialog to come up, in which case the user has to wait for it to finish loading, then see the buttons on it are ghosted out (Why?) and to finally get to the dialog close gadget, all when simply trying to scroll down a page a little. It is horribly inconvenient. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open a page that is larger than the window 2.Notice how carefully you must position the mouse to scroll instead of closing the tab or calling the update dialog (which gadget does not even have a visible icon, poor design) 3. Actual Results: Slight mispositioning will close the tab of interest or call up the update dialog Expected Results: Slight mispositioning of the mouse should not cause large delays in browsing, like reloading the page or messing with a poorly designed update dialog
Summary: Locations of the tab closing and Update gadgets are very poor → Close Tab and Updates Available are too close to scrollbuttons
